Ryobi RY38BP vs Echo PB-580T - The differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Echo PB-580T and the Ryobi RY38BP.

But before checking out these explanations, here's a table that summarizes the main pros of each of these 2 leaf blowers:

  • Bigger fuel tank
  • Higher cc
  • Higher CFM
  • Lighter

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Ryobi RY38BP and the Echo PB-580T do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. Both products have their throttle located on the tube of the blower, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack blowers, allowing you to comfortably carry their powerful engines and massive fuel tanks.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds.

CFM & MPH

  • The Ryobi RY38BP, providing a CFM of 760, outmatches the 510 CFM of the Echo PB-580T. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the Ryobi RY38BP, as it should do a way better job at blowing leaves.
  • The Echo PB-580T's MPH of 215 beats the 175 MPH of the Ryobi RY38BP. It therefore expels air faster and should aid you with landscaping more effectively.

Weight & Noise rating

  • The heavier Echo PB-580T, standing at 22.6 lbs, dwarfs the 20.2 lbs of the Ryobi RY38BP, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • The louder Ryobi RY38BP, at the noise rating of 75.5 dB, comes above the 70 dB of the Echo PB-580T, and will be more noisy in comparison.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Echo PB-580T's 62 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Ryobi RY38BP's 30 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • The Ryobi RY38BP's engine displacement of 38 cc is dwarfed by the 58.2 cc of the Echo PB-580T. While the latter uses way more fuel per stroke, it is in turn far more powerful.
  • Each of these leaf blowers features a 2-cycle engine. Thus, they both require you to have an oil/fuel mix to operate.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Echo PB-580T nor the Ryobi RY38BP has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
